This Truckin>Dark Star>Comes a Time is without a doubt one of the most powerful sequences I have heard in 1972 and is one of my new all time favorite jams.

The Truckin' is unique, the Comes a Time is beautiful as they come (don't even mind the AUD sound) but the Dark Star is absolutely transcendental. Don't want to go overboard, but this is possibly my new favorite of the year. One word: Garcia. His playing is just an unstoppable force of nature on this Dark Star, definitely one of his very best moments!!

Anyways, while the Dark Star is the best part of the show, this is still a classic all around; Excellent Sing Me Back Home, and the NFA>GDTRFB to close is very solid. Please don't miss out on this show!!!

Subject: This is absolutely beautiful, and a bittersweet revolution...
As bliss ensues, I am arising to find the truth of joy within our lives. It is bittersweet, to say such a thing, for Pigpen's own life was near an end. Thus begins a bittersweet revolution, and the keys of Keith are clearly beginning to arrive at a place the music progresses to throughout 73 and 74. In the summer of 72, when I was the grand old age of -22, there is a lilting joy through which the speakers convey. Jerry's guitar has spoken. His voice shall never be silenced. The songs shall sing onward, bliss shall ensue. It is beautiful- this life and this music. But this is a review of the music, and I shall let it continue to speak for itself in the sweet melodious tone it has begun with. We all know that Keith will revolutionize the sound. Beginning here, he alone takes that place ( /; ). But onward the music places, each song crafts its tone and speaks in amazing harmonious ways. I hear not Mickey nor Keith nor Phil nor Bob nor Jerry, but an amazing sound that arrives at my heart and causes my ears to listen to the beauty of the sun-touched songs of 1972

Subject: Notes
1. Pigpen out sick. Keith on piano.
2. Lots of technical difficulties onstage in sets I and II.
3. Lots of stage banter between songs.
4. Stella Blue gets awfully cut during the second verse, and immediately cuts to the middle of El Paso.
5. Recording seems to have small glitches, squeaking and buzzing, esp. during Truckin' but some of this is coming from the stage.

Can't stop listening to this performance of Truckin. Put on a nice set of headphones and justlisten to all the things that Garcia drops into the jam.

Gonna go look around for other shows around this time period to see if this was just a one nite and done jam or it was something they carried over the course of a few concerts or this tour.
